Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It seems like a slow, wasteful, boring class; especially for one required for several degrees. At first that is. Professor Young is energetic and respectful for an elderly woman, keeping things simple and interesting. Whether a student is breezing through or struggling, by the end of the course, it feels amazing, refreshing and quite eye-opening for opinions where nothing is rejected.
The class is majorly based on past Anthropological Theorists, so there's not much apart from lectures and presentations. The different theories are fun to learn about, with historical impact and development that creates a strong base for social sciences and simple perception to how and why Western society may be as it is today, and how it has impacted other societies across the globe.

Advice for students:
It's not difficult to do the essays. While several pages are requested, ultimately, the essays are simply for self review, so as long as a chunk of the questions are answered, even a couple pages are acceptable to get full points. So the readings aren't that huge of a deal, and the final paper isn't so much a true final, rather than just one last small essay.
